BOWMANVILLE, ON (August 11, 2019) – Collingwood’s Ben Young claimed the 2019 MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship (CSBK) with a third-place finish in the first of two rounds at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) Saturday in the Superbike Doubleheader presented by BMW Motorrad.

Young, riding a BMW S1000RR, entered the weekend with a commanding 59-point lead over Jordan Szoke (Kawasaki ZX-10RR Ninja), winner of the last four CSBK titles. But the Lynden, ON veteran couldn’t close the gap to keep his championship hopes alive for Sunday, finishing second in the race, and 57 points back of Young. The race was won by Samuel Trepanier (St-Isidore, QC) on a BMW S1000RR – his first career Superbike victory.

Young brought home BMW’s eighth Superbike manufacturers’ championship in nine years.

Sunday’s Superbike race was won by Kenny Riedmann (Belfountian, ON) on a Kawasaki ZX-10RR Ninja, followed by Trepanier and Szoke. Young rounded out the top four.
